2013: the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

So 2013 draws to a close, and everyone's putting up their best games and moments and such. I figured I might as well join in. It seemed like a quaint little idea. There's a problem though. As I've said in the past, I'm terrible with puttin...

 
 
 

Sui Generis Pre-Alpha Footage

It's shameless promotion time, everyone. While I had written something else for this week, it has unfortunately been put to one side for the time being. Instead, and because I don't already see it being mentioned, I wanted to bring a littl...

 
 
 

Front Loaded

Note: this post has spoilers for Fire Emblem: Awakening. First impressions matter. If a game fails to hook the audience then it can wind up being banished to the pit of the forgotten (though frankly, I have a soft spot for slow starting ...

 
 
 

My Top Ten Pokťmon

In case you havenít noticed yet Ė which is always a possibility Ė thereís a new Pokťmon game out. This means two things for me. Firstly, it means the Alt Gr key has seen a spike in usage. Secondly, and more relevantly, it means Iíve been po...

 
 
 

Avoiding the Hype Train

Hype is, without any doubt, among the scourges that I loathe the most in gaming. Whenever a game becomes the subject of ludicrous hyping, I lose all interest or desire to play it. People who fall for its honeyed words turn into frothy mout...

 
 
 

Top Five Emotional Moments

In my eagerness for the next Pokemon games, I couldnít be arsed to play anything that was worth writing about. To make amends, Iíve written up another top five, which isnít really a top five, because Iíll be buggered if I have to put in the...

 
 
 

Shadow Warrior 2013 Review

Iím not a terribly huge fan of first person shooters, but every so often a special exception comes along that I simply have to indulge. The new Shadow Warrior, developed by Flying Wild Hog, is one such exception, and for many good reasons (...

 
 
 

Golden Sun Retrospective

Note: this post may contain spoilers for Golden Sun and Golden Sun, the Lost Age. † This week instead of anything coherent I will grant you a lecture of personal history. Something close to my heart. Among one of my favourite games of all ...

 
 
 

Top 5 Final Boss Themes

Sorry, but thereíll be no game post this week. No particular excuse this time, but I do have something else up my sleeve. Again, itís a musical themed entry. I donít know why since I donít know anything about music, nor do I have any sort o...

 
 
 

Prison Architect Alpha Impressions

Prison Architect is a prison management game in development by Introversion Software. This is another game that does what it says on the tin and has you become the architect behind the prison. It's vital to note that this game is still in i...

 
 
 

Race the Sun Impressions

Race is the Sun is the recently released high speed score attack game by developers Flippfly. On the surface Race the Sun is a very simple game, featuring minimalistic controls and rules. Thanks to its procedurally generated tracks and pote...

 
 
 

Goldeneye Orchestral Cover Album

Sad to say there will be no game impressions or review from me this week. It was a case of depressed Monday, busy Tuesday, exhausted Wednesday, couldnít be arsed Thursday, write this up desperately Friday. Hopefully next week Iíll be back o...

 
 

About Shuudaone of us since 5:34 PM on 03.27.2012

Online I go by the alias of Shuuda. I am currently living North Yorkshire, England. In 2011 I graduated from the University of Hull with a first class degree in Design for Digital Media, where I studied both the creative and theoretical sides of the digital technology and the internet.

As someone who is passionate about about video games than the fantasy genre, I am highly interested in how stories can be told through interactive media. I concern myself with how the genre is portrayed within the medium and its implications. I give it both criticism and praise, but mostly criticism. Writing fiction has been my hobby for many years, and I feel that video games have influenced and inspired the content of my work in recent times.
